“Palestinian” prof resigns after death threats for taking students to Auschwitz

Prof-DajaniHe was inundated with threats. He was denounced as a traitor. He was vilified and excoriated. Why? Did he advocate violence in the name of Islam, thereby twisting and hijacking the Religion of Peace? No, he took students on a field trip to Auschwitz to teach tolerance and empathy. The guardians of the “‘Palestinians’ are innocent victims of a genocidal apartheid Jewish State” myth couldn’t stand for that.

“Palestinian professor resigns over students’ trip to Auschwitz,” by Inna Lazareva, the Telegraph, June 8, 2014:

A Palestinian professor who took his students on a field trip to Auschwitz has resigned from his post following months-long campaign of death threats, campus riots and intimidation against him.

Prof Mohammed Dajani, head of the American Studies Department and director of the library at Al Quds University, was denounced as a “traitor” and “collaborator” by some of his colleagues, students and members of the public, after he organised the trip to the site of the Nazi concentration camp in Poland. It was announced that Prof Dajani was also “fired” from the university staff union, despite never having joined the organisation in the first place.

27 Palestinian students attended the trip in March as part of a project to learn more about the Holocaust and teach tolerance and empathy. The programme, run in conjunction with an Israeli and a German university, also took Israeli students on trips to meet Palestinians living in refugee camps.

Prof Dajani condemned the campaign of “incitement” directed against him in an interview with Israeli daily Haaretz, saying that he submitted his resignation as “a litmus test to see whether the university administration supports academic freedom and freedom of action and of expression as they claim, or not”. He said he had hoped the university president would “take a stand” by refusing to accept his resignation.

“I put my job on the line to expose the double-talk we live”, Prof Dajani told Haaretz. “We say we are for democracy and we practice autocracy, we say we are for freedom of speech and academic freedom, yet we deny people to practice it”.

Relations between Al Quds University and Israel deteriorated sharply following the Israel-Gaza war in 2008. In recent years, the university has been criticised for increasingly turning a blind eye to demonstrations glorifying violence on its campus. In March 2014, Al Quds University President Sari Nusseibeh resigned after masked pro-Hamas demonstrators carrying replica rockets and lauding attacks on Israel held several rallies on university grounds.

    Academic freedom, democracy, free speech and pluralism? Apparently not.

    Virulent anti-Semitism, genocidal aspirations, and tyranny? Yes.

    I’m glad that there is a dim flicker of rationality and decency in Judenrein “Palestine.”

  2. Jacksonl03 says

    And we wonder why there are no peaceful, moderate, fair minded Muslims speaking the truth or condemning atrocities or advocating fairness or making friends with non Muslims or . . . .

    Well, this incident certainly clears things up: In Islam, the religion of peace, they’d get killed if they did.

  3. Kepha says

    Look at the bright side. Prof. Dajani got 27 Arab students to go on the field trip. Maybe they’re willing to learn something about the other side. Perhaps next, they’ll talk to some elderly Iraqi, Moroccan, Libyan, Egyptian, Yemeni, Iranian, or Afghan Jews who might talk about what it was like to grow up as 2d class Dhimmi citizens of lands where their people had lived long before Islam came along. Such people are, after all, the parents and grandparents of the slight majority of Israeli Jews.

    I’ll give Mohammad Dajani the benefit of the doubt for now.

    • BC says

      Dr Dajani is a very courageous human being. However I would like to know what happened to the students who went on the trip. Were they persecuted as traitors as well?
      I think any Muslim who tries to see the other point of view or even questions Islam is a traitor to most Muslims

    • gravenimage says

      Kepha, I don’t believe that Mr. Spencer is implying that there is any problem with the decent actions of Professor Dajani, but rather of the death threats he has received and the complete lack of support from his Islamic university.

      • Kepha says

        Agreed, gravenimage and a few others. I said I was looking on the bright side here. Dajani and his students made an honest effort to look at the other side.

        As for what was done to Dajanii (NOT by him), I think it despicable.

  4. PJG says

    There’s that word again: “tolerance”. Was it “intolerance” which caused the Holocaust and will it be “tolerance” which prevents another Holocaust? No, it was not “intolerance”, it was pure hatred. There is a big difference. I suppose all academics have to use this terminology – or maybe it was the journalist rather than the academic.
    Intolerance is not in itself a bad thing, when it is a healthy reaction to evil. But I see too much tolerance around for all manner of things we should vigorously oppose, such as the halal certification racket, the corruption of councils which bend council rules to allow mosque-building, the lies told in “Islamic” museum exhibitions and in our schools, fake “asylum seekers”, you name it.

      Wait just a minute, now, friend. You don’t know that beyond any doubt. You are basing that assumption on , most likely, 2 things: his surname, and that he is a professor at a Muslim/Palestinian ‘University’.

      That’s a dangerous assumption to make. Allow me to use myself as an example.

      I used to be a Professor at a University in a Muslim land. My real last name (of which you are quite well aware) sounds distinctly German – in fact, it is not. It is English in its latest incarnation, with Dutch spellings before that.

      Anyway, it is quite clear that I am neither a follower of Muhammed – but more importantly, and to my point, NEITHER AM I A FAN OF NAZIS. Basing assumptions on surnames and where someone happens to work is weak.

      Now – let’s assume that you are correct; that the Professor is, indeed, a follower of Muhammed. He put his job on the line and did something that I find very remarkable (Auschwitz, his ‘Palestinian” students traveling, etc.).

      Aren’t you being a little hard on the guy? Perhaps he just needed the money, as I did, when I took that job over there.

      Regards,

      PJ

        Unfortunately, our friend voegelinian is unwilling to admit that some Muslims are capable of behaving decently despite of the filthy teachings of their “prophet”, unwilling to admit that, for different reasons, many decent Muslims are unable to openly and publicly reject Islam. And most importantly, he’s unable to realize that many, many Muslims are in fact Nominal Muslims, as opposed to True Muslims.
        Putting all Muslims in the same basket is not fair, to say the least.
        He’s right though on the ground of security concerns. I agree with him that all Muslims ought to be suspects. That’s why I am for “profiling.” Decent Muslims shouldn’t object to it.

        • The Levite says

          I agree Salah. As a Jew and a zionist from London but no longer living in the Uk, I agree that despite many despicable acts you cannot say that ALL muslims are despicable or evil. I have muslim friends, who know that im jewish and in fact i have had several muslim girl friends too.

          Unfortunately i do believe that whilst a considerable amount of muslims are against these atrocities and the hate we see, they are way too frightened to either upset maybe family members or friends, alienate themselves or ultimately maybe be killed.

          It would appear that all the wrong’ens hold all the cards and there lies the problem .

          The other issue is what is the definition of my “considerable amount” ….out of 1.4b muslims, i think there are too many haters….

          As for the Prof. I commend his bravery and his desire to try and mend and bridge things….i hope he is offered a job in Israel and a safe life for him and is famly…..

      • says

        Prof. Dajani (full name Mohammed Dajani Daoudi — the latter name stemming from his illustrious heritage when in 1529 Ottoman Sultan Suleiman I appointed one of his ancestors, Sheikh Ahmad Dajani (1459-1561)‏, to begin a family line as custodians of the traditional tomb associated with King David (“Daoud” or “Dawood” in Arabic) on Mount Zion) is touted as a “moderate Muslim”. That alone should earn our ruthless skepticism.

        “Dajani, director of American studies at Jerusalem’s Al-Quds University, in 2007 founded Wasatia, a social and political movement based on concepts of moderation, pluralism, democracy and justice that he found in the Koran.

        That information alone substantiates my diagnosis of Dajani at which Philip demurs.

        There’s more.

        Though Dajani is a secular Muslim, and supports separation of religion and state, he turned to religion in building his platform. “There will be no peace unless there is peace among the religions …

        No, Professor; there will be no peace unless Muslims stop their rampaging sociopolitical disease that is killing and oppressing people all over the planet. No other religion is responsible for this; all other religions, in fact, are actively doing good for “peace among the religions” (except insofar as they, in their deluded political correctness, agree with the likes of Professor Dajani that what we need is to “all get along” Kumbaya-style).

        Dajani’s organization for “peace”, Wasatia, “supports a two-state solution, with the Old City having international status because of its significance as a holy site for Judaism, Islam and Christianity.”

        No “two-state solution” is possible when one side is composed of genocidal fanatics fueled by Islam’s mainstream Jew-hatred and generally murderous supremacism grounded in their mainstream texts, supported by mainstream clerics (including Grand Imams of the most prestigious Islamic university, Al-Azhar), and enabled by the vast majority of Muslims around the world (as reflected in repeated surveys over the decades). That Dajani has been spending years seeking such a fantasy (after becoming “disillusioned” by Fatah which he joined as a youth) also substantiates my diagnosis of Dajani at which Philip demurs.

        (Dajani “became a student leader in the secular Fatah movement in 1967, while studying at the American University of Beirut. He also did PR work for Fatah in Lebanon. In 1975, Lebanese authorities deported him to Syria for his political activism.”)

        One of Dajani’s colleagues Al Quds University, emeritus economics professor Iskander Najjar, notes in support of Dajani’s organization that Palestinians “… Muslims, Jews and Christians were [always] neighbors.”

        No. Muslims were never “neighbors”. They were, and are, rapacious genocidal fanatics who hate Jews and want to kill Jews unless they convert to Islam or submit to dhimmitude servitude under Islamic tyranny (and even then would get randomly lynched at the whim of bloodthirsty Mohammedans).

        “I am for normalization,” says Dajani. “We should learn from the South African concept, but not copy it. If the Israelis feel secure with us as neighbors, they will fight in our struggle for a Palestinian state.” Justice and compassion must be “for both sides − from both sides,” he says.

        Dajani never stopped being against occupation or for Palestinian rights, but – even though the Israelis were unable to save his mother – he stopped seeing all Israelis as the enemy. He became involved with many interfaith and joint Israeli-Palestinian programs.

        Sheer schizophrenic fantasy (which, again, substantiates my diagnosis of Dajani at which Philip demurs) or a calculated lie. There is no third explanation. And the former is enabling the stealth jihad which is endangering the free world now, with metastatic worsening in the decades ahead — dependent upon the naivete of the likes of Philip Jihadski.

        From the Wasatia website, one of several essays by Dajani:

        The Holy Books as Light and Guide to Humanity

        By Mohammed S. Dajani Daoudi

        While many books of politics are filled with the call for a “clash of civilizations,” the Holy Books call for a “dialogue of civilizations,” and for an “understanding of civilizations.” They all share the basics Abrahamic moral guidance, and if we search in depth in the sacred scriptures of the rest of the world’s religious traditions, we will find much of the same teaching of the Abrahamic faiths in them also. A careful, detailed look at the Hebrew Bible, the New Testament, as well as the Qur’an, makes clear the common religious values and ethics inherent in all three traditions. As the last of the three, the Holy Quran urges Muslims to believe in the holy scriptures of Jews and Christians that preceded it…

        The Quran teaches Muslims to love and worship God and that there is but one God whose message was brought to humanity by a series of prophets, including the Hebrew prophets and Jesus, and ending with Muhammad.

        Judaism, Christianity, and Islam share the concern for the individual relationship with God and the importance of manifesting that love in relations with others.

        The Qur’an promotes positive bonds between people because of their common moral responsibility toward one another. Chief among these are deep ethical commitments to equality and justice, and charity to the poorest and the marginalized.

        How could Dajani not know this is pure unadulterated camelshit? My diagnosis is looking more and more over-generous…

          Well, Hesp – it appears you have done your “research”…

          “Dajani, director of American studies at Jerusalem’s Al-Quds University, in 2007 founded Wasatia, a social and political movement based on concepts of moderation, pluralism, democracy and justice that he found in the Koran.”

          Unfortunately, the above, and everything else in the article, and your analysis, does nothing, and says nothing about, the fact that he took his students to a killing ground of the NAZIS.

          Your post also says nothing about the first point I brought up – how do you know that he is, in fact, a slave to Allah and Muhammed? You haven’t addressed that. How do you know, for a fact, that he isn’t hiding, to save his skin, etc.?

          I admire your hard work, but you didn’t, also, address the problem of Professors, such as myself, who go to those places for money…am I enabling Islam – because I wish to provide for my children? Answer that and we’ll continue. But what Salah, above, has said is very pertinent; you see in every fuc*king Muslim a potential threat – I do too. But how do you know which ones? Do you suggest rounding them all up to find out? You have never answered this most telling query that I have posed to you for YEARS here on this site. Answer it.

          You forget, or pretend to, that the subject of the thread is not Prof Dajani’s words at an interview, but his noble, courageous deed and the hateful response it has provoked.

          So what precisely about his pilgrimage to Auschwitz testifies to him being a liar or schizophrenic?

        • says

          Schizophrenia is on one level two contradictory things held by one person, affectively and intellectually. His deeply religious admiration for Islam and the Koran (and reasonably supposed for Muhammad) is one of those two (supplemented grotesquely by his fantasy-based Palestinian advocacy) — the giant ingredient the JW Softies are willfully eliminating from their attention as they concentrate on the field trip to Auschwitz, so desperate are they to find the elusive Moderate Muslim.

        • says

          More: On Dajani’s website in a feature on the Auschwitz field trip:

          “The idea is to study empathy in order to affect feelings of reconciliation,” Dajani explained to The Media Line. “We are exposing Palestinian students to what happened during World War II — in particular, the Holocaust concentration camps. At the same time, we are taking 30 Israeli students to visit Palestinians who suffered as a result of the 1948 Nakba,” he said.

          I.e., Dajani is actively purveying the Equivalence of the Nakba (and by extension the “suffering” of the “Palestinians”) with the Holocaust. This Equivalence is one major piece of the puzzle by which “Palestinians” (and by extension Muslims in general) have become endowed with the grotesquely unearned privilege of being the “New Jews” who are implicitly supposed to be threatened with incipient genocide whenever anyone begins to notice what Muslims are doing in the name of Islam and becoming appropriately horrified by it.

          Not only is the Nakba nowhere near to being equivalent; there was no Nakba. It’s a propaganda invention by Muslims in order to continue to grind their perpetual axe against Jews (and by extension to jerk tears from the clueless West for their eternal Victimhood). Shame on all Jihad Watchers being so naive and gullible here.

        • gravenimage says

          Professor Dajani *does* admire the “Prophet”, and he refers to the ‘Holy Qur’an’ as the “reference guide”.

          Here is a translation of the “manifesto” of Wasatia (“moderation”), which he subtitles “The Spirit of Islam”.

          In it, he mistranslates Quran 2:143 as “And thus We have made you a middle-ground [i.e., “moderate—GI] nation”, whereas usually it is translated as “And thus, We have made you a just nation”—that is, just in the Islamic sense of savage Shari’ah law.

          He says, “the message of Islam was sent forth to guide all mankind”—the only question is what he believes that message to be.

          He *does* tout moderation as opposed to “extremism”, but cites the sanguinary “Prophet” as an example of the former.

          Here’s one of his interpretations of “moderation”:

          Muslims are center between Jews “who brought God’s anger at them”; and Christians “who have gone astray.”

          In other words, only Muslims are right.

          Later, he says Wasatia emphasizes another interpretation—but does not actually explicitly reject the above.

          He makes mention of Islam ‘revering’ the prophets and Jesus—without mentioning that Islam regards these figures as *Muslim* prophets.

          He mentions that Muslims may marry Jews and Christians, but carefully makes light of the fact that only Muslim *men* may marry the “people of the book”, since women can be controlled.

          He uncritically cites the “Omarite Covenant”—that is, the infamous “Pact of Umar” which sets second-class citizen dhimmnitude for non-Muslims.

          He does mention equality—but then all of his references are Muslim treatment of other Muslims.

          He also says the West is wrong in considering “moderate Islam” as a rejection of violent Jihad and brutal Shari’ah law, but just writes “in reality, the issue is more complex and deep”.

          In the midst of all this he characterizes the “Palestinian” issue as initially having nothing to do with religion.

          He refers to Hamas as an “Islamic resistance movement” to “Israeli occupation”.

          He says that Hamas is “moving toward the center”—i.e., moderation. The only indication he gives of this is that they held elections.

          He does advocate the recognition of Israel—in her indefensible 1967 borders.

          He also calls for the “right of return”, which would immediately leave Israel with a large and hostile Muslim population.

          Read it all here:

          http://legacy.ptwf.org/Downloads/Wasatia%20Book%20in%20English%20222.pdf

          So—is Professor Dajani a moderate? Almost certainly so.

          But the above, I’m afraid, shows that “moderation” in Islam is rather a relative term.

          Certainly, he is moderate enough that his more orthodox coreligionists want to murder him—of course, this is hardly uncommon with members of the “religion of peace”.

          Please, instead of pronouncing diagnosis about my “ethical narcissism” – (whatever it is) try to listen carefully again:
          Nowhere in my comments here I am touching upon the “macro level”. Not in one word. Please see that I am limiting myself to the subject of R. Spencer posting, which is about Prof. Dajani visiting Auschwitz with his students and the consequences his unusually brave act have had on him.
          I wrote a comment lauding Prof. Dajani’s character and the nature of his act, which I found admirable , while you believe it is either is fraudulent, or schizophrenic.

          Now I don’t suggest anything beyond what is obvious about the act per se, or using your terminology, I remain on “micro level” and never attempt to project my “micro” conclusion to your “macro level”. But this is exactly what you are doing arguing that a “micro level” deed carried out by a moslem cannot be good because Islam (macro level) is evil and therefore the man himself must be evil, (or schizophrenic, or a liar) – in any case danger to “… the lives of (my) friends, family and fellow citizens.” In fact the moral quality of his act in itself is irrelevant, or indeterminable, but my believing in its goodness makes it evil.

          thomas,

          Nowhere in my comments here I am touching upon the “macro level”. Not in one word.

          Did I say you were? It is precisely my point that you did not mention the macro level, that you are apparently ignoring the macro level, and fixating on the micro level, and that this is your deficiency. I can’t very well advert to a deficiency in your presentation without mentioning what you have neglected to mention, can I?

          And how can I arrogate my “personal impression”, as you say, if it’s mine to begin with?

          What I wrote was a bit too compacted and hastily written. What I meant is that you are appropriating (= arrogating) the one-on-one personal level (= the micro level) in order to privilege it with more significance than it has (or should have). It shouldn’t have any significance in this context, since our safety concerns are societal and involve societal dimensions (= are the macro level), not interpersonal relations. One Muslim doing something that seems moral is a) either irrelevant to our safety concerns, or b) is positively inimical to our safety concerns insofar as such a micro event when translated into policy would soften the tough measures we would need to adopt for the macro level. I.e., what’s the point of doting on this Muslim professor? What’s the pragmatic point? What would we do differently, knowing that Dajani did an apparently good deed like this?

          …this is exactly what you are doing arguing that a “micro level” deed carried out by a moslem cannot be good because Islam (macro level) is evil and therefore the man himself must be evil…

          Did I say “evil”? Evil is beside the point here, strictly speaking. The point is the danger Muslims threaten on the macro level.

          ” Address my words or shut the fuck up.”

          Interesting, perhaps; but no contradiction there. Perhaps someday Philip Jihadski will *address my words*. Hope springs eternal — for non-Muslims, at any rate.

  6. Saleem Smith says

    The local “Palestinian” Muslims will likely declare the professor an apostate and demand he be put to death for considering the holocaust to be a real thing.

    We ex-Muslims living with Islam’s formal and informal death penalty for apostasy know that Islam is a complete fraud.

    The “Palestinian Muslims” will only be satisfied with the total annihilation of the State of Israel and the Jewish people despite what they say to the Islamophilic media.

    Muslims tend to believe what is written in the Qur’an and Muhammad’s Sunnah and unless they abandon Islam there will likely be many more dead Jews in future unfortunately.

    Hadith, Sahih Muslim, Book 041, No. 6985:

    “Abu Huraira reported Allah’s messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: The last hour would not come unless the Muslims will fight the Jews and the Muslims would kill them until the Jews would hide themselves behind a stone or a tree and a stone or a tree would say: Muslim, or the servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me; come and kill him; but the tree Gharqad would not say, for it is the tree of the Jews.”

    Quran, 5:82
    Surely you will find the most intense of the people in animosity toward the believers [to be] the Jews and those who associate others with Allah;

    Hadith, Bukhari, Vol. 4, Book 53, No. 392:
    Narrated Abu Huraira:
    While we were in the Mosque, the Prophet came out and said, “Let us go to the Jews” We went out till we reached Bait-ul-Midras. He said to them, “If you embrace Islam, you will be safe. You should know that the earth belongs to Allah and His Apostle, and I want to expel you from this land. So, if anyone amongst you owns some property, he is permitted to sell it, otherwise you should know that the Earth belongs to Allah and His Apostle.”

    Here is a recent statement from a group of Bangladeshi apostates living in the UK explaining the reasons why they have abandoned Islam:

    “One who claims to be a messenger of God is expected to live a saintly life. He must not be given to lust, he must not be a sexual pervert, and he must not be a rapist, a highway robber, a war criminal, a mass murderer or an assassin. One who claims to be a messenger of God must have a superior character. He must stand above the vices of the people of his time. Yet Muhammad’s life is that of a gangster godfather. He raided merchant caravans, looted innocent people, massacred entire male populations and enslaved the women and children. He raped the women captured in war after killing their husbands and told his followers that it is okay to have sex with their captives (Qur’an 33:50). He assassinated those who criticized him and executed them when he came to power and became de facto despot of Arabia. Muhammad was bereft of human compassion. He was an obsessed man with his dreams of grandiosity and could not forgive those who stood in his way…

    The statement continues,

    Muhammad was a narcissist, like Hitler, Saddam or Stalin. He was astute and knew how to manipulate people, but his emotional intelligence was less evolved than that of a 6-year-old child. He simply could not feel the pain of others. He brutally massacred thousands of innocent people and pillaged their wealth. His ambitions were big and as a narcissist he honestly believed he is entitled to do as he pleased and commit all sorts of crimes and his evil deeds are justified. ”

    Who ever heard of such a thing as democracy and freedom in Islam?
    Well at least some students seen something different to their Islamic conditioning.

    • eib says

      Again, every Muslim claim on democracy and freedom is a mockery of these things, and should provoke instant contempt from every Westerner.

  8. says

    Muslims actually “love” the Holocaust. Muhammad perpetrated the first Holocaust when he PERSONALLY DECAPITATED 900 UNARMED JEWS of the Banu Quarayza tribe. Hitler simply copied what MUHAMMAD did to the JEWS. That is why there was such a close relationship between the Muslims led by the Grand Mufti and the Nazis.

    • JIMJFOX says

      For Chrisake Richard, don’t persist with lies. It debases your opinions.

      Muhammad ORDERED the decapitation of the Banu Quarayza, he did not/COULD NOT (probably) behead them ALL himself.

      Several accounts note Muhammad’s companions as executioners, Ali and Al-Zubayr in particular, and that each clan of the Aws was also charged with killing a group of Qurayza men.[28][52]

      Try to keep to the facts, as best we know them.

      • Philip Jihadski says

        For Christ’s sake, Jim, write more cogently – and answer my queries from the other thread regarding ‘Christian wrongdoing’ and your contention that ‘Christians have no sense’.

        This is what I am talking about

        “…he did not/COULD NOT (probably) behead them ALL himself.”

        He either did or didn’t – no ‘probably’ involved.
        He either could or couldn’t – no ‘probably’ involved.

        and this:

        “It debases your opinions.” Opinions cannot be ‘debased’. That’s why they are opinions.

        finally:

        “Try to keep to the facts, as best we know them.”

        Facts are facts. You either are cognizant of them or not. There is no ‘better’ or ‘worse’ way of knowing them.
        ____________________________________

        For such a lightweight thinker/writer, you sure have a crappy attitude. Also, in your posts on other threads, you seem to indicate that ALL religion is the ‘problem’. Why do you then advocate ‘for Christ’s sake’?

          Opinions cannot be ‘debased’. That’s why they are opinions.

          Apparently you haven’t turned your TV on the last 30 yrs or so. Indeed, we’ve recently evolved from the quotidien practice of debasing the opinions of others to debasing their facts.

          But it’s not evo so much, it’s what the punk band Devo meant when they sang We Are Devo. Backwards ho!

      • Philip Jihadski says

        APF – with all respect, you just don’t understand:

        “Apparently you haven’t turned your TV on the last 30 yrs or so. Indeed, we’ve recently evolved from the quotidien practice of debasing the opinions of others to debasing their facts.”

        No apparently about it. I HAVE! And your snide suggestion that I haven’t does nothing for your quasi-argument.

        “…we’ve evolved…?” Pfft!

        and this…

        “…debasing the opinions of others to debasing their facts.”

        What the fu*k?!!

        You don’t know the difference between a fact and an opinion, APF!

        I’m disappointed in you. Think again, then come back at me.

        • Alarmed Pig Farmer says

          Oh, c’mon, Jihadski, I was being sarcastic.

          You don’t know the difference between a fact and an opinion, APF!

          I’m not sure there is a difference between the two anymore. Now that we’re in the realm of deconstructionism, they seemed to have melded.

          Thomas Jefferson said, “You can have your own opinion, but you can’t have your own facts. He had no idea that doing so would one day become possible, and even mandatory. Preference trumps truth now, and the question is who programs what’s preferred?

    Where is the human rights outcry from Muslims on this.
    Where is their moral indignation.

    Good morning Muslim world.
    It is time to wake up from Islam’s nightmare.
    The world of light awaits.

  12. dadd says

    Because it never happened as far as imams are concerned, and here is the site it did, and you don’t question islam. The last thing islam needs is muslims who saw the lies of islam, and were exposed to light and truth. These are not tools Satan uses.

  13. Dennis Trisker says

    Prof. Dajani did a brave and honest act. I am surprised at the reaction of some of the commentators on this website. It seems that some peope cannot see beyond the religious name of a person. Many Muslims only call themselves such because of birth. Otherwise they only want to get on with their life. The Professor should be lauded for going against the stream!

    • says

      “Many Muslims only call themselves such because of birth. Otherwise they only want to get on with their life. ”

      How many? Where are they? How can you identify them as such?

      Questions which no one of Dennis Trisker’s persuasion ever answers adequately enough for our #1 priority — the safety of our societies from a metastasizing global revival of Islamic jihad.

      • eib says

        Important, important questions! How many? Indeed!!!
        The claims of most Muslims to civilization, tolerance, social justice, egalitarianism and peace should be viewed with unbridled and loud contempt.

        Voeg:

        “How many? Where are they?”

        What stupid questions. There is no doubt that they are there, despite what you may suspect.

        You are beginning to be a pain in the ass to our cause.

        Answer the question:

        ” How do you propose to find out who and who is not a Muslim?”

        Answer it, and stop being a p*ssy.

        • PJG says

          In defence of Voegelinian/Hesperado: he is merely saying we do not know and cannot know which Muslims are harmless and which are not.
          This is the fundamental problem, as we allow more and more Muslims to enter our lands, and hope for the best.
          I have been helping a friend with his “Counter-terrorism” university assignment. The police have a problem with Muslims who are unco-operative in counter-terrorism investigations. The article to be discussed in the essay proposes that police improve their methods of interrogation, bearing in mind the importance of “respect and dignity” towards angry and resentful Muslims who don’t like being targeted.
          Incredibly (well, not), the writers propose that we change our procedures and laws in deference to Muslim “anger”, in the hope that terrorism will be avoided. In other words, submit to Islam to avoid trouble. Even though we don’t know how many Muslims are “angry”. Just a few are enough, apparently, for our lawyers to consider changing our laws.
          The police are being used to take the responsibility for Muslim rage and bend over to accommodate it. Of course we all pay. But how many angry Muslims does it take for our “peace-loving” governments to change the laws ? Who knows? Hundreds? Five or six? Why validate their anger?

        • Jay Boo says

          @voegelinian
          I must admit the professor did not condemn the prophet Muhammad before all his neighbors but honestly would you do that?
          Risking his career and possibly his life, Prof Mohammed Dajanitook took Palestinian students from the Holocaust denying land of (East Jerusalem?) on a field trip to Auschwitz to teach tolerance and empathy.

          The “Muslim” did a good thing in spite of being a Muslim.

        • says

          “In defence of Voegelinian/Hesperado: he is merely saying we do not know and cannot know which Muslims are harmless and which are not.”

          Not only do I say that:

          …a fact that we have pointed out many, many times at Jihad Watch: there is no reliable way to distinguish jihadists from peaceful Muslims…

          …what we have pointed out many times over the years: that there is no reliable way to distinguish between Islamic “extremists” and Islamic “moderates”…

          Robert Spencer wrote those in two different Jihad Watch articles years ago. If one does the math one would multiple the two instances by the “many, many times” avowed therein. If one then applies elementary reason to that fact of our lack of knowledge, we are faced with the broader fact that, on the macro level (the only level our general safety concerns) there are only two responses to this most disturbing lack of certainty:

          1) recognize that we cannot tell the difference, but go ahead and give innumerable Muslims the benefit of the doubt;

          or

          2) 1) recognize that we cannot tell the difference, but put our society’s safety above our ethical narcissism to feel better about ourselves by refraining from the hard choice of #1.

          We see the apparent fault line among those in the Counter-Jihad in threads like this among, reflecting a broader division in the Counter-Jihad — between those who care more about their ethical narcissism than they do about the safety of their societies. Sitting on this ever-growing mountain of horrible data (viz., “Jihad Watch”) about Islam and about Muslims, I find the JW Softies to be outrageously offensive in their evident inability to digest the full horror of these thousands of articles they have, over the years, been reading and commenting on. The victims of Islam cry out, and the JW Softies desperately grasp at straws looking for the Moderate Needle in the haystack, while the one that broke the camel’s back long ago should have buried that futile search.

  14. Alarmed Pig Farmer says

    Oh poor Prof Mohammed. He tried to buttress his Moslem teachings with a reality-based fact or two, and his students, followers of the same belief system, are so outraged that they’re threatening violence on him.

    Welcome to your religion Islam, professor. And, as they say, you can look it up.

    • Jay Boo says

      What would you do different if you grew up in an Islamic country APF
      Draw Muhammad cartoons?

      • Jay Boo says

        @ APF furthermore, I suspect that you would probably run away screaming and screeching “please don’t hurt me” like a little girly when confronted by Islamist fanatics but I can’t blame you because I would probably be running two steps ahead of you doing the same thing.

        So just give the man his due credit.

        Let’s not be petty like the lowly prophet Muhammad

      • PJG says

        Jay Boo asked “What would you do different if you grew up in an Islamic country APF

        If I grew up in such a country and had the chance and the money, I would leave. If not, I would do what some other Muslims do, and ignore Islam as much as possible. Train as an optician or musician or something. Stay away from the mosque and certain university departments. Being brave isn’t for everyone, but being a more-or-less fanatical Islam-promoter isn’t the only alternative for the Muslim trapped in his Muslim country.

    Quote:
    Prof Mohammed Dajani, head of the American Studies Department and director of the library at Al Quds University, was denounced as a “traitor” and “collaborator” by some of his colleagues, students and members of the public, after he organised the trip to the site of the Nazi concentration camp in Poland.

    I am honored and pleased to pray for this wise and caring man who has paid an unjust price for his knowledge and perspective.
    Lord Jesus Christ, you see him and his community does not. Bring him dignity somewhere on this earth, a place in this world where he may teach and share his thoughts. Shield him from cruelty. Help him fare well in the future.

    • dumbledoresarmy says

      Pray that the twinges of cognitive dissonance he may be experiencing – dissonance such as people like “Mark Gabriel” (author of “Islam and Terrorism” and Magdi Cristiano Allam (who *before* his exit from Islam had already visited Israel and written a book called “Viva Israele”) experienced *before* their public apostasy – may continue, and get stronger, and unstoppably resolve into 1/ recognition that Mohammed and Mohammed’s teachings are in fact evil and false and then, therefore, 2/ outright apostasy from Islam. Pray that the soul-eater, ‘allah’, the arab demon of blood and war, may be *exorcised* from his body, mind and spirit.

      such a prayer will do no harm and might do a lot of good.

      Remember Walid Shoebat.

      • says

        Dajani also seems to be heavily burdened by that kind of self-righteous pride one sees so typically in the Leftist, arrogantly knowing they are on the side of the angels — the problem here being, of course, that (at best, if he’s only schizophrenic) his heart and mind are following both an angel and a demon, yet he has this self-righteous sense that both are angels. This would be, in effect, the Leftist twist on that species of Muslim slowly, torturously molting out of his spiritual Gulag.

        Meanwhile, these malformed missing links of Islamic Evolution morphing back into the human race are a distraction to our main priority — the safety of our men, women and children.

    “Palestinian” prof resigns after death threats for taking students to Auschwitz
    …………………………………

    More of Islam’s twisted relationship to the Holocaust, where pious Muslims both deny that it ever happened and at the same time taunt Jews with the specter of “finishing the job” and chants like “Hamas, Hamas, Jews to the gas!”, and revere Adolph Hitler as the architect of the “final solution”.

    More, also, of the way devout Muslims react to *anything* they don’t like—with death threats and violence.

    I feel badly for what happened to Professor Dajani, but I am hardly surprised by it. Even after his resignation, I hope he can stay safe from his vicious coreligionists.

    God, I hate Islam.

  17. says

    By the way, when you read Dajani’s website and read some of the students’ words who went on his field trip to Auschwitz, you get glimpses of a problem. Example, one student said he liked the idea of taking the field trip, so that he could get a different perspective on the Holocaust from the usual narrative that the Israelis push. Hmmm…

    “Kepha, I don’t consider there to be any “doubt” about Prof Mohammad Dajani.

    Neither do I. Not in the slightest. I have no doubt Mr. Dajani is a just, honest, courageous and intelligent man. There are no other qualities that could explain his very risky effort of trying to reverse the effect of years of demonization of Jew conducted by the “Palestinian” leaders AND centuries of islamic tradition of Jew hatred.
    So please Kepha, with all respect, give us one possible less-than-noble intention motivating Mr. Dajani’s action.

  21. says

    Dear readers, all the talk about TOLERANCE misses the following paradox of tolerance by Karl Popper—:

    Unlimited tolerance must lead to the disappearance of tolerance.

    If we extend unlimited tolerance even to those who are intolerant,

    if we are not prepared to defend a tolerant society against the onslaught of the intolerant,

    then the tolerant will be destroyed, and tolerance with them.

    Hence we must NOT Tolerate the Intolerance of Islam & Sharia

    PERIOD!

    Someone once said that tolerance is an attitude rather than a virtue. Will Rogers put it better when he said that a liberal is a man who won’t take his own side in a fight.
